Internet Explorer (Windows 10)

Internet Explorer is a series of graphical web browsers developed by
Microsoft and included in the Microsoft Windows line of operating
systems, starting in 1995.

Vulnerability Type:
Denial Of Service

CVE Reference:

Security Issue:
A null pointer de-reference (read) results in an InternetExplorer
Denial of Service (crash) when MSIE encounters an specially crafted
HTML HREF tag containing an empty reference for certain Windows file
types. Upon IE crash it will at times daringly attempt to restart
if that occurs and user is prompted by IE to restore their browser
session, then selecting this option so far in my tests has shown to
repeat the
crash all over again. This can be leveraged by visiting a hostile
webpage or link to crash an end users MSIE browser.

Referencing some of the following extensions .exe:, .com:, .pif:,
.bat: and .scr: should produce the same :)

Tested Windows 10
